Lack Torrone Table

Materials: Lack coffee table, wood glue, wrapping paper, shellac

1. Lack coffee table was built as per instructions.
2. A one inch border was measured out around the table and marked with graphite pencil.
3. A corresponding rectangle was cut from a super snazzy wrapping paper.
4. We used burlesque star Angie Pontani’s tutorial for Torrone table as the inspiration for our project.

4. We glued down the wrapping paper with a very thin mixture of Gorilla Glue and waper and painted it on to the table. Then, we pressed down the wrapping paper very slowly so as to remove all of the airbubbles.
5. We then applied about 5-6 layers of shellac.

    That looks so fine. I want to take my shoes off, snuggle up on your inviting couch, and look at it.
